Millimeter-Wave Radio Transmission: An Application and Technology Primer

In 2003 the North American Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opened several high frequency millimeter-wave (MMW) bands, namely in the 70, 80, and 90 GHz ranges, for commercial and public use. Due to the vast amount of spectrum (roughly 13 GHz) available in these bands, millimeter-wave radios have quickly become the fastest point-to-point (pt-to-pt) radio solution on the market. Radio transmission products offering full-duplex data rates up to 1.25 Gbps, at carrier class availability levels of 99.999%, and over distances close to one mile or more are available today. Due to cost-effective pricing, MMW radios have the potential to transform business models for mobile backhaul providers and metro/enterprise “Last-Mile” access connectivity.
